A fruit fly experiment starts with 600 flies. If the population increases following exponential growth and there are 1000 flies after 2 days, how many days will it be until there are 10000 flies?

1 000 = 600 e2k

k = .539927

 

10 000 = 600 e.539927 t    where t = days

10 000 / 600 = e .539927 t

t = 5.21 days    to 10 000 bugs
